HOW? you cry.

According to Riverhead Local, the driver was attempting a left-hand turn when the car left the road and struck the cable.

“It just happened to stabilise right in the middle of the guy wire,” said Riverhead Fire Department Chief Joe Raynor.

The firefighters use a tow truck to keep the car stable, and a forklift to guide the elderly female driver from the car. Thankfully, she was uninjured in the mishap.
